Why I chose the Nokia E72

On Thursday, I received the Nokia E72 which was finally delivered by Hutchison Three. I signed up on the $29 cap and received the phone for free. The plan includes $150 worth of calls, SMS, MMS, international calls and calls to other non-Three phones. All calls to Three phones are free with an unlimited use of these free calls included. When signing up, they also offered the data plan for $4 per month which includes 500MB each month which is plenty for what I intend to use it for (Gmail, Maps Navigation, Web surfing).

The phone is a Nokia E72-2 model which is a Three branded phone without the availability of the latest  400.21.013 firmware. I chose a black E72 so that it maintains its professional look.

Setting up 
As the first thing to do, I used a backup of my Nokia E63 on PC suite to restore it on the Nokia E72. That way, I could retain my contacts, calendar entries, notes, bookmarks etc but the SMS did not transfer properly. Half of the SMS messages from my old phone did not make it but I am not sure why.

Features I love about the E72
- Choosing the length of your snooze time
- Full screen caller ID photos
- The opti-navi key which allows touch sensitive scrolling
- Excellent keypad for texting and typing
- Free QuickOffice upgrade
- Fast CPU processor compared to the E63 and E71
- Turn-to-silence the phone when a call comes through
- Spoken alerts such as "Battery Full" and "Charging"
- Free Voice Navigation on Ovi Maps!!
